In this latest release, there is no brave whistleblower in sight, just an anonymous hacker believed by the FBI and US intelligence community to be a front for Russian intelligence services. The WikiLeaks project has fallen far from the lofty heights of its founding a decade ago, when Julian Assange promised to “facilitate safety in the ethical leaking movement”.
